Distress Markers, Impression Obsession, Tim Holtz, What's Brewing

Cup o’ Joe

coffee card
I love coffee.  I  love coffee cards, but don’t make them often enough!  This particular card was SO much fun!!  To begin, I stamped out the mug from What’s Brewing by Impression Obsession using Versafine Onyx Black permanent ink, colored them with Ranger Distress markers, fussy-cut them out and then coated each with a layer of Glossy Accents by Ranger.  Setting them aside, I stamped my coffee background stamp (company unknown) with Walnut distress ink onto a piece of Bristol Smooth paper, then the coffee rings (I don’t recall where I got them or who made them!) and then heat-embossed the coffee beans over all using brown embossing powder.  I sponged Walnut distress ink heavily around the edges and into the center, leaving some white space.  Each of the mugs are lifted with a bit of foam tape and the sentiment is from Stampin Up, stamped with Walnut onto a scrap of paper.  For some reason, I only took one photo of this card, but after posting it to a Facebook group, was requested to make several more for purchase!  This is one of my favorite cards ever!

  1. I love the smell of coffee but could never develop a fondness for the taste, sorry! But your cards are beyond special, with your artistic details shining through in all areas! It’s truly another work of art, and I love it.
